Webinar Summary | February 2021

This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the February 2021 webinar Understanding the Interconnectedness of Climate Change, Salt Marsh Resilience, and Nuisance Mosquitoes.

Journal Article | February 2021

This journal article describes a new approach for statistically modeling boat wakes, which can help managers better understand how boat traffic impacts shoreline erosion and sediment transport.

Project Overview | January 2021

This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project that is piloting and refining DNA-based monitoring protocols that can be applied to specific issues and species of interest in estuarine ecosystems. 

Project Overview | January 2021

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by Grand Bay Reserve that developed standardized tools to quality-check, analyze, and visualize Surface Elevation Table data. 

Journal Article | January 2021

This article, published in Estuaries and Coasts in 2021, estimates sediment impounded behind dams, compares this with new estimates of watershed sediment yield, and assesses the potential fate for dam sediment released into the estuary.

Factsheet | November 2020

This factsheet describes the process of environmental DNA (eDNA) water sampling in estuarine systems, and provides specific methdology recommendations to facilitate detection of invasive species.

Data | November 2020

This data resource includes eDNA sequences, fish species summary tables, and DNA extractions from Wells, Great Bay, Hudson, Apalachicola, South Slough, and He’eia National Estuarine Research Reserves.

Webinar Summary | October 2020

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the July 2020 panel webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains short descriptions of some education efforts across the reserve system and ideas for expanding the reach of education in new and existing projects.

Journal Article | October 2020

This journal article summarizes results from an experimental living shoreline installation at GTM Reserve in northeast Florida and reveals who how well the installations dampened boat wakes.

Journal Article | October 2020

This article published in Ecological Engineering summarizes findings from a project that installed a series of experimental living shorelines on a particularly high energy shoreline in GTM Reserve, Florida.

Project Overview | October 2020

This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project in which researchers are conducting the first-ever comprehensive blue carbon assessment in Pacific Northwest tidal wetlands. 

Project Overview | October 2020

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that demonstrated the feasibility of including carbon finance in funding strategies that support the conservation and restoration of tidal wetlands in the Pacific Northwest. 

Webinar Summary | September 2020

This resource contains the webinar recording as well as the presenter slides and Q&A responses from the September 2020 webinar Dams and Sediment in the Hudson.

Data | September 2020

These five related carbon storage, greenhouse gas flux and environmental variable datasets were generated by the Bringing Wetlands to Market research team and used to develop a coastal wetland greenhouse gas model for New England.

Journal Article | September 2020

This article, which appeared in Global Change Biology, discusses findings from a study that quantified total ecosystem carbon stocks of major tidal wetland types in the Pacific Northwest.

Data | August 2020
Project Overview | August 2020

This project overview describes the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson collaborative research project that assessed how sediment released by dam removals would affect the Hudson River estuary and provide practical tools to regulators and practitioners.

Tool | August 2020

This advisory committee charter, developed for a National Estuarine Research Reserve project to evaluate a thin-layer placement as a strategy for marsh resilience, offers an example for engaging diverse end users in collaborative research.

Multimedia | August 2020

This story map and K-12 activity invites students to explore coastal marsh vulnerability to sea level rise and a collaborative experiment to enhance marsh resilience at the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Virginia.

Factsheet | August 2020

The Native Olympia Oyster Collaborative brochure Restoring Resilient Native Oysters from Baja California to British Columbia provides an introduction to Olympia oyster restoration for general audiences.
